to have the american president to the u.n., we do not agree with you. and i will give you two examples. we are all -- and i'm going to deal with the issue of iran. it will be the first question. before iran, let's speak iraq. in the early '80s, the prime minister decided to attack the nuclear reactor in iraq. it wasn't popular here in the u.s., but we did it. and we we were condemned by the u.s., by the state department, we were condemned by the u.n., but years later people exearkted that the -- appreciated that the, grave decision that prime minister begin took in 198 is 1 was for the benefit of the american people. because when you, the american army, invaded iraq, you were able do into the region without taking the risk that iran was nuclear. i'm sure there are some young jewish people in the audience, and for us, i don't mean -- yom kippur is the holiest day of the year. 1973 during the yom kippur, that's something i found out even though i thought i knew everything before i wrote the book, but while doing the research, i learned myself a lot, and i found out that in 1973 when the egyp
ready for wednesday's rumble. >> well, the president's the president. he was at the u.n. giving two major speeches. he's been dealing with all sorts of international business, domestic business. he is at the white house a lot of the time preparing and i can tell you that his -- they have had to cancel times when he might or might not have been able to do preparation. it's my understanding mitt romney spent four or five days secluded somewhere. had five debates in 24 hours or 48 hours. and has senator portman with him every day on the airplane practicing. i'm here. i'm not traveling with the president or doing any of this. >> more expectations setting from senator kerrly and also making the point that being the job of president gets in the way of debate prep and leaving town and leaving washington helps for the president and doesn't hurt, wolf, picked a battleground state, nevada, to do the debate prep and going to other states. >> not far from denver, either. >> an easy jump over. also learning new details about how mitt romney's preparing for his first face to face contest with the

, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
namic. that is on the agenda at the u.n. what do we expect there? >> reporter: that's right. there will be a meeting today sort of on the sidelines of the general assembly. it will be hosted by secretary of state hillary clinton. it is a meeting of the friends of syria. it will be attended by ministers of some 20 countries. the purpose of this meeting essentially to show support for the syrian opposition and to address the humanitarian concerns. the risch shan foreign minister is going to speak today. likely he will talk about syria. the russian foreign minister said yesterday russia is not going to offer asylum to the syrian president, bashar assad if that is sought. he also said russia is not pressuring assad to step down. martha, one statistic that is very disturbing. since monday, since the start of the general assembly this week, 489 people have been killed in syria because of that ongoing conflict. today we'll hear russia address it but unlikely we'll see any resolution anytime soon. martha: tragic and press, pressing event and on going store. david lee, thank you very
on the run inside the country, half of them children according to the u.n. and expected by the end of this year, some 700,000 people will have fled to neighboring countries and become refugees. it's in this climate that we entered syria. we went as you said with the syrian -- the free syrian army and we passed through the checkpoint we noticed they very much wanted to let it be known they were in charge. their flags were flying, they were in charge of the checkpoint. as we went with them towards aleppo, we saw bread lines, massive numbers of tanks, disabled tanks that were left over from the government, and we also say lots of bombed out buildings, so we saw lots of damage. what's happening is this free syrian army is in charge of pockets of land and they're trying to hold on to it. as we got closer to aleppo, andrea, we saw air strikes. we saw the evidence of air strikes not too far away and we met up with a commander of some 2500 soldiers, rebels essenti essential essentially, fighting under him in aleppo and he talked about -- he was complaining about the use of aerial strikes b
. >> ( translated ): thorough our ambassador we maintain contacts with syria and they assure us also through the u.n.'s special envoy for syria mr. lakhdar ibrahimi that it is a tragic incident, such incidents will not be repeated in the future. scuffles outside the turkish parliament in ankara, only a few protested, but many turks fear war erupting with their neighbor. once a friend, now deemed an enemy. inside the chamber, m.p.s granted the government powers to send troops over the border but that looks unlikely. by this evening the syrians had done exactly what the russians asked. inside syria, the war grows ever more bitter. neighboring countries and world powers have picked sides and are providing arms and other support, but as the u.n. security council meets tonight to discuss a resolution on yesterday's shelling, it's clear that no-one, least of all turkey and syria, wants the war to spill over the border. >> woodruff: for more on this i'm joined now by henri barkey-- a specialist in turkish affairs and a former state department official in the clinton administration. he now teaches at lehigh
to the u.n. general assembly was cut short by the tragic assassination of the professor then chairman of the high peace council. his life was taken by a terrorist who posed as a emmerson recommitting and by doing so was a serious blow. however, fortunately, the late professor stepped up to take the share of the highest council is part of the afghan delegation and present in the assembly today. i have repeated often times an hour hand of peace and reconciliation extended not only to the taliban, but also all other armed opposition groups that wish to return to the dignified, peaceful and independent lives in their own homeland. what we ask of them in return is simple. violence cutting ties with terrorist networks reserving the valuable gains of the past decade and respecting the constitution of afghanistan to help facilitate the peace process, i ask the united nations security council to extend its full support to our efforts. in particular, i urge the taliban sanctions security to take more active measures towards the listing of the taliban leaders to facilitate the direct negotiation
you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say this was a spontaneous administration? >> maybe he thought that at the time. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was either willful ignorance or biz malintelligence to think that people come to spontaneous demonstrations with heavy mortars and the attack goes on for hours, and there were warnings, as you know, because cnn put out part of chris stevens' diary. things are going south all over the world. look at this morning in iraq. we've got a miserable failure in iraq. it's unraveling. afghanistan, more insider killings, because this president doesn't believe in american exceptionalism and keeps telling people we're winning. finally he said something about syria, but now we're going to give them communications equipment, which does very well against attack airplanes and helicopters and artillery and tanks. >> you're being sarcastic here. you want to give more? >> we need to arm them. the iranians have admitted that they're on the ground. russians arms are falling in. iranian planes are flying over iraq as we speak. >> do
, the administration went out, probably too early with an incomplete report from the u.n. ambassador susan rice on "meet the press" and other programs and now are being called to task. the security in benghazi was very, very thin. and we have the situation where there was clear -- there were clear warnings. what does the administration do? how do they handle these inquiries? >> first of all there's an investigation under way. it's an accountability board that's looking into it. the first thing is, they probably need to pick up the pace because in the first place, you have people really rushing out to try to give an account and often the first counts are wrong. and so i think they've taken a hit for that. now they're going to take a hit unless they get moving on the accountability review board and try to get something out there that is -- explainable. and frankly i think there are a lot of issues there to look at. the question of security, the question of, you know, the whole issue of whether benghazi was butnd down. i don't think this is really a presidential issue. i mean the notion that the p
here. we will not solve our compl nflicts with libel speeches at the u.n. we have to sit together and negotiate together and reach a mutual compromise in which a palestinian state recognizes the one and only jewish state. [applause] israel wants to see middle east of progress and peace. we want to see the three great the legends that sprang forth with respect.n -- to deis they seeks supremacy over all. they want to destroy israel and america. you want to distinguish freedom. the want to end the modern world. militant islam has many branches from the rulers of iran with the revolutionary guards to al qaeda terrorist and the radical list lurking in every part of the globe. despite the differences, they are all bruited in the same bitter soil of intolerance. that intolerance is directed first to their fellow muslims and then to christians, jews, brutus, hindus, secular people -- hindus, secular people, buddhists. i am sure of one thing -- ultimately, they will fail. life will penetrate the darkness. we have seen that happen before. some 500 years ago, the printing press helped pry eu
enough information on the table. dr. makary? guest: n/a plane crashes in the u.s., there is an investigation, the black box is retrieved, and the entire aviation community learn from that mistake. not so much in health care. we have the same mistakes happen again and again. we need to learn more from our own mistakes in health care. we need good. you. we need to examine what goes wrong. what i was a d.c. -- we need good peer review. we need to examine what was wrong. when i was at a d.c. hospital, somebody fell and hurt themselves. even though there was a lot of attention about what happened, the elevator shaft remained open and a second person walked in there. it is hard to believe that we have the same mistakes happen again and again in health care. and we have these so-called "never" events that happen again and again host: sheboygan, wisconsin, barbara. good morning. caller: thank you for taking my call. dr. makary, i agree with you 100%. my question is this, health care seems to be one of the only things that is not a premarket industry in the united states
and the e.u. and the u.n. and the gulf initiative and to implement it and yemen co-signed it in november 2011 in saudi arabia, and it provided a political solution that helped in a peaceful transition away from bloodshed and distraction. implementing the gulf initiative and now yemen has executed the first step from this initiative and we have a national coalition government and the peaceful transition to power and elected new president and this is a novelty or a new thing in yemen and through the elections, yemen is expressed their will in providing or in niending -- finding a solution or avoiding the civil war, and, therefore, yes, yemen voted yes for a peaceful state. civil state, mod enstate, that is based on rule of law and respect of the rights of which allow us to get into the second phase and to implement what's left of the political solution and get the yemen out of the bottleneck and to make it less safely, and we have law -- draft law of the transition that will assist in solving all the bloodshed and all the conflicts, and we still in need of the political and economic assist
. as you talk about it, last week at his speech to the u.n. general assembly, the president went through a list of what he considered to be his big victories, osama bin laden being dead was one and ending the war in iraq was another one. september was the deadliest in terms of attack since august of 2010, which is pretty shocking since the war is technically over. on top of that reuters has some footage that we have for you of literally pictures of the iotolla from iran. pictures all over iraq now as iran is trying to gain and perhaps succeeding at gaining more and more power in iraq. this is a big question that obviously is going to be a problem for whatever president's next but not something president obama wants to be talking about right now. >> with iran obviously they're having sort of its own singular way inserting itself in the elections. we heard from ahmadinejad last week and heard from netanyahu literally drawing that red line on the metaphor kal bomb. >> right. >> could we hear from iran between now and say november 6th? >> well, this is pretty amazing. obviously when prime mi
, they trotted out the u.n. ambassador who said this is a spontaneous demonstration bread by a hateful video. now, that is one of the most disgraceful performances i have ever seen. first year cadet at west point would have told you that that was -- you know, there is -- people sitting around benghazi, grab your mortar, honey, we're going to a spontaneous demonstration. >> gretchen: but senator, looking ahead then to these next debates, i don't know if the president will have it any better off because foreign policy, when we start talking about this, when mitt romney starts talking about it or the moderator, there is going to be a lot of questions to answer and it may be the first time that the president is forced to answer questions about libya. >> well, he did answer questions about his foreign policy. remember, he just said there was a few bumps in the road. iraq is unraveling. al-qaeda is coming back. afghanistan is in total disarray because of this killing of americans by afghan military people and it's because the president keeps announcing we're leaving and it's overruled his military advi
